Another of those busy morning days when I come back home hungry for lunch, almost famished and want to eat the whole world. I am missing my gym and I am not liking it. So I can’t eat the whole world and have to settle down for some good choices and filling and yumm choices.

A little bit of protein, small portion of carb, good fiber and in raw form. What better than some nibbles and a dip. So that’s what I did the other day, made a quick and hearty yogurt dip and chopped some fresh veggies, poured out some baked pita chips on my plate and all set to munch and crunch. Crunch I say because these things make crunchy noise in your mouth when you chomp on them ;).

Here is the easy peasy lemon squeazy Yogurt Dip or Raita.

Raita is an Indian word for yogurt accompaniments.

This is perfect for parties too or serve it along a good meal of pilaf and naan! Versatile ?
